Social Responsibility

A greener clean

Because every business needs to play its part in reducing their industry’s environmental impact.

We are proud members of the SME Climate Hub – working towards carbon net zero by 2050.

GSS is fully committed to doing everything we can to halt the global climate crisis.

We primarily use cleaning products which have been given the ‘green tick’ – minimising their environmental impact and all of our paper supplies are produced either from recycled or sustainable materials.

Ways in which we work greener …

  • 01 SUSTAIN

    Working with the SME Climate Hub to ensure our service delivery methods are achieved in a sustainable way.

  • 02 WATER

    Using water on site to dilute our cleaning product concentrates - reducing transport costs globally.

  • 03 LOCAL

    Employing our staff within the locality of our client sites, reducing transport times to their workplace.

  • 04 PAPER

    Ensuring all paper products supplied are from recycled or renewable sources.

  • 05 plastic

    Only supplying recycled plastic products or sustainable material alternatives to clients.


We donate annually to Clouds of Hope NPO – a children’s and youth residential care centre in South Africa. Once again, this year GSS is sponsoring 25 new pairs of football boots, socks, shin-pads and goalie gloves for their ‘Real Hope’ teams.
